Google has officially confirmed that it is developing a new Pixel phone called the Pixel 5A 5G, and the company did so in the same way it announced many recent Pixel phones, by responding to the rumors.
Google has a history of admitting that it has phones to announce in response to the rumors, as in 2019 it tweeted a picture of the Pixel 4 after leaks began appearing about the phone.
Google said in response to a rumor that the phone has been canceled completely: The Pixel 5a 5G has not been canceled, and it will be available later this year in the United States and Japan, and it will be announced in line with the launch date of the series phone last year.
And theQuote Android Central website independent sources claim the Pixel 5A has been canceled, yet Tweet From the famous leak (John Prosser), it is clear that the cancellation was due to a lack of chips.
However, the chip shortage appears to be real, as Google only plans to release the Pixel 5A 5G in the US and Japan.
Rumors about the Pixel 5A 5G suggest that it is somewhat similar to the Pixel 4A 5G, another low-cost phone designed to extend Google’s reach to the market by lowering the cost.
Code indicating the presence of the Pixel 5A appeared in the Android open source project AOSP as early as July 2020.
The Pixel 5A 5G is expected to be similar – but not identical – to the size of the Pixel 4A 5G, with a 6.2-inch FHD + screen, a dual rear camera, and a headphone jack.
Google’s statement says: It will be announced in line with the time when the Pixel A category phone was launched last year, which was in August 2020.
However, many expected it to be announced at this year’s Google I / O developer conference alongside a low-cost version of Pixel Buds.
It is also rumored that Google is developing a flagship Pixel phone for release later this year, and it should be the Pixel 6.
According to the information, the important thing with the rumored Pixel 6 phone is that it begins using more chips designed from Google, including the so-called Whitechapel system.
